OLM 2018 JDM OE Style Grille

2018-2021 Subaru WRX & STI

Ships for free in the 48 states

Maybe the US knows JDM style better than Japan! In 2018 Subaru gave the entire world the same grille. This is a change from the 2015-2017 models where JDM vehicles had an ultra clean grille vs everyone else.

Now we're more JDM than Japan itself!

JDM OE Style Grille

Back in 2015 when the VA chassis WRX / STI was launched, the USDM vehicles had a different style grille vs the JDM models. They became hugely popular in the US for their clean mesh design without the horizontal bar.

This became the inspiration for a 2018+ JDM style grille. After the facelift, the whole world received the same grille. Available first in the US, this grille will make its way back into Japan! Just wait and see.

Much time was taken in the design to maximize the quality and appearance. Structurally and paint wise, this mimics an OE quality grille. The center support makes the grille strong while still maintaining a clean mesh design.

NOTE: Emblem not included.

Optional Items


S208 Grille Pinstripe

This is the same grille pinstripe that we've installed on the OEM grilles. Comes with one backup pinstripe in case you somehow botch the first install. Install is easy though. Just clean the grille thoroughly leaving it free of debris. You can do a dry or wet install of the pinstripe. Start in one corner and make sure it is all centered up. By applying it slowly, you can guide exactly where you want the pinstripe to go.

OLM LE Dry Carbon Fiber Grille Garnish Overlay

Add a touch of carbon fiber to your grille with this real carbon fiber overlay. It installs in minutes with supplied 3M automotive grade double sided adhesive. Looks great with other carbon fiber accessories as well!

Lays ontop and accenting your stock OEM grille giving it an elegant and luxurious look. It gives a unique look to your 2018+ WRX / STI front end.

NOTE: Does NOT come with Subaru Star emblem. Emblem frame only.

  1. Crap over time

    By Russell September 19, 2022

    Like a previous reviewer stated. 8 months to a year after install the grill has completely lost its shine. Make the car look old. Gonna have to find something else. Looks good right out of the box tho.

  2. Poor quality

    By Mike March 30, 2021

    Grill has faded within a couple of months on the car.

  3. Don’t buy

    By Mike March 28, 2021

    Sun faded within months of being on the car.

  4. Dull surprise

    By Freddy September 7, 2020

    I ordered this in the winter of 2019 and installed it in the early spring of 2020 and it is currently September 7th 2020 and my grille has gone from a nice shiny sheen to a dull finish even wax can't help. I would not recommend this grille because I believe there is a likelihood that you will suffer the same fate as me and have a dull front end and throw out your stock grill like a noob.

  5. Looks amazing

    By PT August 15, 2020

    Opened up some holes in the grille for more air flow, and looks really clean. Fit up perfectly on my 18 WRX

  6. 8 months ownership

    By Gab June 27, 2020

    Easy to install and fits perfectly. The main draw back is that the black gloss finish is completely wrecked after not even 8 months, it's now greyish.

  7. Great Upgrade

    By BW June 3, 2020

    This grille is awesome. I was waiting a long time for it to come out having seen the JDM grille for the 15-17.The actual install of the grill is easy, but if you're by yourself or never taken the bumper off, that part can be challenging. It's a great subtle addition to the car to set you apart. Fast shipping as always too.
